Got the kids for the weekend? Here are places in Los Angeles that are fun for adults and children.

Acclaimed chef Joseph Mahon's more relaxed, affordable project features deluxe burgers for the masses in such varieties as the Chip Shot with potato chips and mushrooms and the veggie-friendly Portland with beets and pickled carrots.
